The valves are actually at the back of the motor against the firewall. One goes to each head. You are lucky if your issue is the secondary air pump and or valves and hoses. I changed all that and my issue is "carbon buildup in the heads"... a luxury car so technically advanced and yet an issue like this on an '04...really?! Its a $4-5k fix...
